Manual on Waste to Energy

This manual provides an overview of the waste to energy with co-benefits of CDM. Chapter 1 introduces the global waste generation trend and the challenges associated to put up with the management of the waste thus produced. Chapter 2 and 3 gives an overview of the waste to energy technologies and possibilities in the energy recovery from various streams of waste. Chapter 4 is dedicated to monetizing CDM co-benefits of waste to energy projects. Chapter 5 assesses the environmental and social concerns of WtE. Chapter 6 present business model for WtE projects. Finally, Chapter 7 concludes with the challenges and strategies for future expansion and implementation of co-benefits approach waste to energy projects.


WASTE TO ENERGY- A Technical Review of Municipal Solid Waste Thermal Treatment Practices

This WTE background report supports the Ministry of Environment‟s scoping phase, and is intended to be used as a supporting document for subsequent steps, including preparation of emission guidelines. This background report addresses the concept of what constitutes good performance, based on best practices in the WTE field in order to provide guidance on potential stack emissions limits and the design and operation of WTE facilities.

Overview of Municipal Solid Waste to Energy Systems in Thailand

This report provides details about MSW Management, Waste to Energy, Challenges & opportunities for WTE in Thailand.


Waste gasification vs. conventional Waste-To-Energy: A comparative evaluation of two commercial technologies

Stefano Consonni, Federico Viganò

Waste Management- Volume 32, Issue 4, April 2012, Pages 653–666

A number of waste gasification technologies are currently proposed as an alternative to conventional Waste-to-Energy (WtE) plants. Assessing their potential is made difficult by the scarce operating experience and the fragmentary data available. After defining a conceptual framework to classify and assess waste gasification technologies, this paper compares two of the proposed technologies with conventional WtE plants.


Analysis of technical and environmental parameters for waste-to-energy and recycling: household waste case study

S. Wenisch, P. Rousseaux,H. Métivier-Pignon
International Journal of Thermal Sciences- Volume 43, Issue 5, May 2004, Pages 519–529

This paper focuses on the treatment of household waste by waste-to-energy conversion. It assesses, in particular, both technical and environmental implications of a waste pre-sorting that may affect the treatment process.


Social acceptance for the development of a waste-to-energy plant in an urban area

Ch.Achillas, Ch.Vlachokostas, N. Moussiopoulos,G. Banias, G. Kafetzopoulos, A. Karagiannidisa

Resources, Conservation and Recycling- Volume 55, Issues 9–10, July–August 2011, Pages 857–863

This paper presents the findings of a survey conducted in order to assess social acceptance for the development of a WtE facility in Thessaloniki, Greece. Face-to-face interviews revealed a rather positive – compared to waste landfilling – public attitude on the integration of thermal treatment in the local waste management strategy, on the contrary to what was initially expected.

Energy potential from municipal solid waste in Malaysia

Sivapalan Kathirvale, Muhd Noor Muhd Yunus, Kamaruzzaman Sopian, Abdul Halim Samsuddin

Volume 29, Issue 4, April 2004, Pages 559–567

The average amount of municipal solid waste (MSW) generated in Malaysia is 0.5–0.8 kg/person/day and has increased to 1.7 kg/person/day in major cities. This paper highlights the MSW characteristics for the city of Kuala Lumpur. Currently, the waste management approach being employed is landfill, but due to rapid development and lack of space for new landfills, big cities in Malaysia are switching to incineration.


Finding urban waste management solutions and policies: Waste-to-energy development and livelihood support system in Payatas, Metro Manila, Philippines

Kevin Roy SERRONA, Jeong-soo YU

Journal of Environmental Sciences- Volume 21, Supplement 1, 2009, Pages S40–S43

One of the potential solutions in social and environmental sustainability in municipal solid waste management (MSW) in Metro Manila is to combine community based recycling and sound landfill management strategies.........


Waste not, want not: the private and social costs of waste-to-energy production

Marie Lynn Miranda, Brack Hale

Energy Policy- Volume 25, Issue 6, May 1997, Pages 587–600

Communities, and whole countries, are considering implementing the quickly-evolving technologies of waste-to-energy (WTE) production. Unlike other energy sources, waste-to-energy plants have two objectives. In addition to generating useful energy, these plants are designed to ensure the safe and effective disposal of municipal solid waste (MSW).......


Energy content of municipal solid waste in Jordan and its potential utilization

Moh’d Abu-Qudais, Hani A Abu-Qdais

Energy Conversion and Management- Volume 41, Issue 9, 1 June 2000, Pages 983–991

The objective of this research is to estimate the energy content of municipal solid waste (MSW) generated in Jordan based on its physical composition.
